Noon Edition airs on Fridays at noon on WFIU.

The beginning of a new year means many people are looking to get a good start on their New Year’s resolutions.   

Physical, mental and emotional health are at the center of many resolutions. And if history is a guide, a majority of resolutions won't be long term. One poll from 2020 shows two-thirds of resolutions will be broken by Feb. 1. Research in 2019 showed most resolutions didn’t even make it that long, calling Jan. 19 “Quitters’ Day.” 

On Noon Edition this Friday, we will talk with health experts about the best ways to defeat those trends and stick to your resolutions all year long.
